Open Call: Arab Documentary Photography Programme

The Arab Fund for Art and Culture (AFAC) and the Prince Claus Fund (PCF), in partnership with the Magnum Foundation (MF) in New York, USA, are delighted to announce the fifth cycle of the Arab Documentary Photography Programme (ADPP).

The ADPP is a program jointly funded by AFAC and Prince Claus Fund, targeting creative documentary photographers in the Arab region. A jurors’ committee comprised of Arab and international experts will select up to 10 grantees to receive financial and professional support to complete their proposed photography projects.

The focus of the Arab Documentary Photography Program is to support compelling non-stereotypical and unconventional visual documentation of important social issues and narratives relevant to the Arab region. In recognition to the image’s power to document, educate and advocate, the ADPP will also explore ways by which documentary photography can reach out to wider audiences and engage with them in a compelling and impactful ways. Photographers may propose to work in a range of non-fiction narrative styles, from classic documentary photography to more experimental visual storytelling, and may propose to include audio and video elements.

ADPP’s objectives are

1. To raise the level of creative documentary photography in the Arab region;

2. To train photographers and expand their approaches to visual storytelling;

3. To share strong visual narratives from the Arab region regionally and internationally; and

4. To explore wider access to documentary photography and a more active engagement with its audiences
